Hot on the heels of Monday's LG Remarq announcement by Sprint, Verizon announced yet another LG messaging phone Tuesday, dubbed the LG Cosmos. Though it doesn't have quite the same green cred as the Remarq, the Cosmos does have a similar slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Features include the typical text and multimedia messaging, plus a speakerphone, Bluetooth, GPS, voice command, automatic voice clarity, and a 1.3-megapixel camera that boasts 2x zoom and noise reduction. Verizon also says the Cosmos will have easy access to social-networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, and more.

The LG Cosmos will be available this Thursday, March 25, from Verizon Wireless for $29.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a new two-year contract.
